Commonsense Approach To The EconomyViews: 213

IMO, you cannot fix any of this mess truly until you fix the underlying problems which are you have representatives who aren't representing, executives who have taken that name to mean they should be executing their own business while putting their heels up on their proverbial (and sometimes, literal) desks while eating their cheese and wine...the old adage "you can't make money if you don't spend it" has been taken to the extreme.

To say that some have oversimplified is an overcomplication. Cut out all the crap that isn't worth the money being spent on it, the pet projects, spend money on the needs. I'm not just talking about short term. Yes, we need to go green; it is an enormous undertaking with a huge payoff...and a temporary boost to our unemployment dilemna and a way to retrain the workforce in sectors that could be internationally competitve...something we sorely lack nowadays. We need to fix our infrastructure...of course no one is talking about alternatives and advances made in transportation and technology since Hoover.

Think forward, think responsibly, plan and be prudent. What is so complicated about that?

If you throw money at the problem, you continue the dilemnas that brought us to this point and devalue our monetary value. If you re-evaluate, reduce, cut and restructure...not to mention the NEED for accountability...you will ultimately increase the value of our currency by strengthing the influence of our society.

The blame game has got to stop, and we have to start being personally responsible for our action/inaction which has contributed to this mess. That means going beyond our personal responsibilities, our business impact and on to our responsibilities as citizens to uphold our representatives to the highest standards looking at what they do and not what they say and removing them if they do not live up to their responsibilities.

We need to hold one another accountable to our actions. That is what we really lack...accountability.
